Capitalism has come to the Internet! By that, I mean that soon only the RICH may surf! Us Plebes will just have to take what we can afford just like our cars, healthcare, housing, etc.
Of course... some of us will be too poor and won't get any internet at all.
This Washington Post article describes the problem...
It's pretty complicated but as I understand it, it's basically a simple monopoly. Very soon only one company can dictate how much bandwidth you get which will depend on how much you pay. Since everybody wants fast internet, the price will go through the roof.
As Rush Limbaugh once said to James T. Kirk... "Some of us will live in Mansions while others will live in Bungaloos."
I guess most of us will have bungaloo internet soon.
